1 Dough - 5 Cookies

Welcome to the Christmas elves. Where clouds are made out of cotton candy and winter storms smell like cocoa, the hands sink into dough and the noses are smeared with chocolate.

I love XMAS time!!! Can´t start early enough thinking about the wildest cookie recipes. It takes a lot of diversity if you want to get your vegan cookie can to dance this year. I don't need many cookies for christmas but at least I need 5 different kinds - to have a choice ;-) for that I have created a quick and special dough this year, with which you can make an exciting variety of cookies. In the blink of an eye you'll have 5 of the most popular kinds of christmas cookies ready to enjoy, while you lean back and relax. The cookies are great to bake with children because the baking tray looks so colorful.
By the way every cookie is baked in the same amount of time, so you can pop them all at once in the oven.

Have a lot of fun with your christmas bakery!

Basic dough
Makes aprox. 60 cookies.


For the cookie dough:
220 g spelt flour
120 g almonds, blanched and grounded
100 g powdered sugar (raw sugar)
one vanilla pod
150 g vegan butter, at room temperature
3 tbsp oat cream or another plantbased cream

Mix flour and almonds, sift powdered sugar and vanilla together. Build a little hollow and add cream and butter. With a fork mix the dough until you can form a homogeneous ball. Wrap the dough into clear film and put it in the fridge for at least one hour.
Vanilla-Kipferl
Makes aprox. 60 cookies.

Additional ingredients:
20 g powdered sugar to dust

Devide the dough into 3 pieces and work on each part separately. While working on one piece of dough you can put the other pieces back into the fridge. Form dough into 2,5 cm thick roll and cut aprox. 1 cm wide pieces. Now form the piece to a roll with spiky ends and place them like a moon. Put them on a sheet with baking paper and bake about 12 minutes at 180° Celcius (356°F) two-sided heat.

Dust powder sugar on the Kipferl while they're still hot. Store them in a metal box at a cool place and they're durable for 2-3 weeks.
